Heat is at pinnacle now. As I promised in my last post – Aam Pana, that I will be using more of mangoes this season and will try to make the good-ol’ mumma’s recipes and relive my childhood, here I share the chutney which is very much a sweetheart in summers in north India.
The mingling of raw mangoes and mint creates a very soothing tangy magic, a subtle hint of garlic and spice as you want them, is just cannot be missed in the summers.
Time: 10 mins
Serves: 1 cup chutney
2 raw mangoes, green variety (kairi), stoned and cut in to cubes
1/2 cup mint leaves
2-3 garlic pods (ahh!! I can’t get enough of them)
1/2 tsp. roasted jeera
2 green chilies (love the Concoction of chilies with tang)
1 tsp. common salt or per you taste
a pinch of black salt
Blend all the ingredients and chill.
Relish with your meals or even as a sandwich spread.
Mint is a cooler and relives any stomach pain or disorder.
The mingling of mint and mango is a sure rescuer for the sweaty days.
You can use some tempering on the chutney, but this tastes awesome just plain too.
